Once in Antarctica, we will attempt to land at several places. Penguins, seals, whales, and large flocks of seabirds give life to this surreal and beautiful landscape. We will bring you on shore both to observe unique wildlife, and to set foot on the continent. You may also enjoy the opportunity to kayak in the region's icy waters! While on board, enjoy expert presentations on Antarctica's rich history, as well as the local wildlife.

Stunning Fjords and Cape Horn

After crossing the Drake Passage again, we arrive at Cape Horn, a mystical place where two oceans meet. We continue into the fjords of Chile, a wild and remote area that seems almost untouched by humans, with mountains plunging into icy waters. The steep valleys with snowcapped mountains make a striking contrast to an otherwise green area that is rich in wildlife.

Enjoy the Natural Beauty of Patagonia

We continue to sail along the Chilean Pacific coastline, filled with snow-tipped volcanoes, beautiful lakes, raging rivers, and lush vegetation. Visit Torres del Paine National Park, one of the most scenic national parks in the world, and enjoy this vast, rugged, and beautiful landscape, before the expedition ends in colorful Valparaiso.
